THE GOODS LINE


Client: Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority
Landscape Architect: Aspect Studios
Contractor: Glascott Landscape & Civil

The Goods Line is a unique project which re-purposes a defunct rail line into a green space designed for pedestrians and recreation. The designers, who won a Civic Landscape Award of Excellence at the recent AILA NSW Awards night, were faithful to the history of the site with elements of railway architecture and materials used throughout the project. The pathway is now a critical piece of Sydney’s infrastructure linking key landmarks such as Darling Harbour, The Rocks & Central Park,

Headline plants for this project
